    The Hire: Beat the Devil

    ★★★★

    A short - part of BMW's The Hire series - involving James Brown, Danny Trejo, Marilyn Manson, and Gary Oldman playing the devil. Directed by the late Tony Scott.

    * - (chuckles)... I'll see myself out.

    ★★★★★

    Nostalgia in full effect!

    The tale of a group of young prehistoric creatures on a long, dangerous journey to a safe haven (The Great Valley) is just as engaging, touching and entertaining as it was when I saw it as a kid.

    Don Bluth and his team did an excellent job on the animation that still holds up to this day. The same goes for the late James Horner's great music score. I felt like a kid again; memories of…
